Bethan co-ordinates #MadCovidDiaries and is generally involved in most other MadCovid stuff! She has long term experience of living with a mental health condition and is passionate about survivor / service user collective activism. Amongst many things, Bethan was a Recovery in the Bin admin from 2018 – 2020, where she led a campaign resulting in the halting and amending of the #CALMEDTrial. She also wrote and co-delivered #Neorecovery: A survivor led conceptualisation and critique at the 25th International MHNR Conference, 2019. She has previously worked as a service user researcher and is involved in numerous studies as a co-applicant and in an advisory capacity.
Bethan openly leads a double life as a ‘professional’, having qualified as an occupational therapist in 2011. She currently works as an NHS research occupational therapist and is undertaking her PhD at Cardiff University.

G is a Mad armchair activist in his PJs helping out with MadCovid wherever he can!
Matt spends the whole week thinking up good questions for MadCovid’s weekly Quarantine Quiztacular. Any spare few minutes he manages to find are spent on him submitting his PhD in Medieval Literature. He also lives with Bipolar 2 disorder as well as some long term physical disabilities, and is always happy to talk about the harm that lazy thinking and unhelpful attitudes can have towards those living with disability. He’s also pretty happy to talk about horror films, video games, D&D and poetry, so maybe don’t get him started on any of those.
